Sloane, "your 70s is showing". 

But honestly, what else is new? I go from hard core norm core to Woodstock reincarnated each week. I refuse to pick between the two.

I initially planned on wearing birks, but thought that was just a smidge too much, so went with Soludos (that have a hidden platform... can you say killing the game?) These wide-legged flowy pantalons are the ideal option for when shorts are not in your favor. So, when that time comes blast some 70s tunes- preferably ones from Woodstock and work those pants.

If you didn't catch on from my hashtagTBT Insta post,  I'll be returning to my favorite island in a nine days. As I'm 100% finito with wearing turtlenecks and fleece up to my eyeballs, you can only imagine the bottled up excitement of purchasing clothes that happen to be filed under: sun and sand.

But the party doesn't stop there. I also have been keeping something else under wrap in addition to my upcoming trip. Next week, big changes will be coming to Sailing the Sea of Style. And by changes, I mean bigger than the big bang theory changes. Okay, okay, let's not get too carried away there. Even though things will be switched up, don't you worry, little 'ol me will still be typing away behind the screen.

Before you go and shop some sun ready pieces, I need some help from a few readers. Email me at

SLOANE.C.K@GMAIL.COM to get the scoop of why I'm recruiting you.

Until then you know the drill: sun's out, guns out.

If you guys couldn't figure it out (I mean... it's not the hard) I'm quite the shoe head. I can never resist any sneaker, sandal, or flat- sometimes heels- you throw my way. Alas, I've decided to include some video content to the blog. *slow clap* about time, Sloane- I know... I know...

Wander

Wearing:  Paul & Joe dress,Soludos espadrilles, Samudra clutch,Stella & Dot necklace c/oTieks,Ray-Ban sunglasses

Sometimes the only cure for wanderlust is to sleep less and explore more. 

As I plan my summer travels, I often forget I was in Anguilla not too long (check out my fading tan). The crystal blue waters made me fall in love with the ocean all over again and remember how the simpler things in life can be the most beautiful ones. 

And yes, I did live in these espadrilles most of the trip along with Samurda clutch- easy and breezy. 

Happy weekend. x

Island Daze

Wearing: Madewell popover,French Connection trousers c/o,Soludos espadrilles (lived in them) 

Reminiscing about early mornings in my island mindset. Waking up in a morning daze was the perfect counterpart for pajama-like dressing. Each morning (disclaimer: I'm not an early riser), I would love watching the waves roll in Barnes Bay and soak in the balmy island air. Stepping out of my comfort zone with mixing brights was the perfect morning pick-me-up (along with guava smoothies and fresh fruit).

If someone wants to transport me back to island life; greatly appreciated .But this weekend's forecast will do, I suppose. Happy Friday.
